For some reason , out of the blue my printer server (Windows 2000) on my home network has become all but impossible to access. I have tried everything that I can think of to correct the problem including, changing the computer name, changing the group name, but to no avail.
I did find that when the computer reboots (server) and is at the loggin screen (waiting for the password to be entered), all the other computers can connect without issue. However, after I enter the password and finish loggin, the computer is no longer accessible.
The server can at any time connect to any of the other computers on the network, just not the other way round. It appears as if the computer will not allow any connections using the name and password that the server is already using. In other words when I log into the server and type in name: xyz and password 123, then from another computer try and connect entering the same name and password, its a "no go". This is how I have been doing it for the past two years without issue.
Any Ideas? Thanks!
